Action cameras are great, allowing you to record first-person view of high-speed action, so you can relieve your adventures over and over. The Revl Arc does the same. Unlike other action cams, though, it comes with a built-in gimbal to ensure even the shakiest action is captured in a steady and enjoyable manner.
That’s right, no more editing your sports and adventure videos to remove some of the shakes post-production. And no more pairing your GoPro with a gimbal in a complicated setup to stabilize things, either. Instead, this thing does it all on its own, whether it sits on your helmet during skiing, on your handlebars while riding downhill, or on your surfboard while catching waves.
The Revl Arc uses electronic image stabilization to correct the pitch and yaw, while relying on the integrated gimbal to stabilize the roll, ensuring it captures your videos like no other action cams could. It’s quite the powerful action cam, too, with a 12-megapixel sensor that allows it to shoot 4K video at 30 fps and 1080p at 120 fps, along with onboard Bluetooth and WiFi for automatically streaming files to your phone. Aside from shooting videos, the camera also logs speed, rotation, altitude, and G-Force data, which it can automatically superimpose onto videos, so you can check out your stats while the action happens.
Features include a 150-degree field of view, waterproofing up to 3 meters, and a battery life of 1.5 hours (it’s swappable, so you can stock on backups). Oh yeah, the app comes with an AI mode that can automatically edit your videos to isolate highlights from the action to make it easier to share (and brag) about your activities on social media.
An Indiegogo campaign is currently running for the Revl Arc. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $399.
